Arsenal are reportedly expected to complete the signing of former Chelsea winger Willian within the next 48 hours.

Arsenal are reportedly on the brink of confirming the signing of former Chelsea winger Willian.

Having formally announced his departure from Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon, the 32-year-old is now free to sign for a new club.

Despite the rivalry between the two London outfits, there is every expectancy that the Brazilian will soon link up with Mikel Arteta's first-team squad.

According to Sky Sports News, the Gunners hope to be in a position to officially unveil Willian within the next 48 hours.

The player has always favoured remaining in England's capital on a three-year contract, two demands which were quickly met by Arsenal officials.
